SXEPHIL'S KEYWORD POETRY - THE MUSICAL


Based on a poem by Robin the Intern
Original Music by Antonius Nazareth
Directed and Edited by Vijay Nazareth
Starring Kristen Luzi and Dimitri Moise!

Lyrics:

When you post on Twitter 'bout al-Qa'ida
Or a Nuclear Threat in North Korea,
The FBI, the CIA,
The ATF, the TSA
The DHS, the DEA,
Will make sure you're okay

If you use a Social Network just to talk about Flu
You can bloody well be sure that they are checking on you
You might be a Threat
You might cause a Riot
They'll know, you bet
So better be quiet,
Or the Authorities
Will call for a State of Emergency
And arrest you for insurgency.

When you exercise your right
To let your friends know,
'Bout that "Incident" last night,
In San Diego

Kill your Home Grown Tomato
It might send in the Nato

With a SWAT team and a Bomb Squad
They use words to check the nation,
Is not attacked by Pakistani Pirates, Mexican Malware, Nuclear Nigerians
ALLITERATION

UK's Dark Cloud: Web 'black box' totalitarianism


Britain's on the verge of a web-wide Big Brother - with internet and phone providers readying 'black boxes' to monitor private emails, social network chats and even calls. The legislation's still in debate, but the liberty alarm bells are already ringing over the government's hunger for a license to listen in. Jim Killock from the Open Rights Group says that, if passed, the law will put British people's sensitive information at risk from online fraud.

Minister Claims Britain Cannot Prevent British Multinationals Supplying Egypt’s Military with Tear Gas

What I think Egypt’s revolutionaries will like about the British Minister’s response.

  1. His assurance that Britain continues to monitor the human rights situation in Egypt.
  2. His obviously deep concern about the protection of and rights of Copts under any new constitution.
  3. His assurance that the British government is encouraging SCAF to keep to its’ timetable for the transition to civilian rule. (This letter was written prior to the “judicial coup” of 14 June).
  4. His affirmation that the British government hopes to see a new Egyptian constitution which respects the interests of “all Egyptian people.”

However Egypt’s revolutionaries and liberals will be less encouraged by

  1. His claim that the British government can not prevent British Multinationals with factories outside the U.K. supplying the Egyptian military with crowd control material, including tear gas. He says it would “not be legally viable” and “such controls would be impossible to enforce.”
  2. His failure to explain why the British government continues to allow British arms exports to Egypt’s military regime despite acknowledging that “human rights and fundamental freedoms are mandatory considerations for all export licence applications.”

Lost in translation: Anonymous hacks Japanese government…almost

Japanese can be a tricky language, even for hackers. The hacktivist collective Anonymous found that out the hard way when one of their attempts to attack a Japanese government website went awry with bizarre results.

­After Japan approved a new law last week threatening jail time for illegal downloading, the hacker group Anonymous released a statement promising retaliatory cyber attacks on Japanese government websites in response to the new measure.

But in a comedic turn of events, Anonymous hacked the wrong site.

[ ... ]

Anonymous responded via a laconic tweet in Japanese that read "We made a mistake. We're sorry. Japanese is difficult."

FREE PUSSY RIOT!

Back in February, Mer blogged about the band’s “Punk Prayer” – an incident in which the band stormed Moscow’s Christ the Savior Cathedral for an impromptu performance. The lyrics of the song criticized the Orthodox Church’s corrupt alliance with Putin’s government, asking Mother Mary to deliver Russia from Putin’s third term. “Virgin Mary, Mother of God, become a feminist,” the girls sang before they were dragged away by the authorities.

After the performance, things got dark for Pussy Riot. Three members of the group were arrested, thrown in jail, denied bail, and held without trial for months. They have been charged with “hooliganism,” and are facing up to seven years in prison. At time of writing, the women have spent 117 days in jail, with the trial postponed for months longer. This is without any family visits, despite two of the girls being young mothers.

This is a Presentation by the late and Great Zecharia Sitchin about his over 70 years of reseach. Zecharia Sitchin (July 11, 1920 -- October 9, 2010) was an Azerbaijani-born American author of books promoting an explanation for human origins involving ancient astronauts. Sitchin attributes the creation of the ancient Sumerian culture to the Anunnaki, which he states was a race of extra-terrestrials from a planet beyond Neptune called Nibiru. He believed this hypothetical planet of Nibiru to be in an elongated, elliptical orbit in the Earth's own Solar System, asserting that Sumerian mythology reflects this view. Sitchin's books have sold millions of copies worldwide and have been translated into more than 26 languages

False & Failing: 'Zombie banks criminals must go to jail'


Just when Britain's bankers thought the worst public vilification was behind them - now the CEO of one of the world's largest banks has been forced out. Bob Diamond from Barclays has bowed to all-round pressure, after his bank was caught fixing a key interest rate which overcharged customers when the financial crisis struck. The Chief Operating Officer has also quit - the third top executive in two days to do so.

China reports bird flu outbreak

Authorities in China's remote northwestern region of Xinjiang have culled more than 150,000 chickens following an outbreak of bird flu, officials said.

The outbreak of the H5N1 strain of avian flu initially killed 1,600 chickens and sickened about 5,500, the agriculture ministry said late Monday.

In an effort to contain the disease, agricultural authorities quarantined the area and culled 156,439 chickens, according to the ministry.

The outbreak occurred on June 20 but was only confirmed as H5N1 bird flu on Monday, it said.

Mexico declares emergency over new bird flu outbreak

The Mexican government has declared a national animal health emergency in the wake of a new outbreak of bird flu that has affected some 1.7 million fowl, leaving around 870,000 dead.

­“We have activated a national animal health emergency with the goal of diagnosing, preventing, controlling and eradicating the Type A, sub-type H7N3 bird flu virus,” the country’s agriculture ministry said.

The declaration implies that farmers would have to quarantine and slaughter the infected birds. Contaminated products are to be destroyed, while unaffected poultry are to be vaccinated.

United - Playing For Change

British police get battlefield weapons

The British police will be for the first time armed with the same advanced weapons as British soldiers use in conflict zones in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The Ministry of Defense has put the contracts for 30,000 modern assault rifles out to tender to major arms producers around the world to supply the “civilian police” with the state-of-the-art weaponry by 2014 under the pretext of fighting terrorists and criminal gangs.

New York Times: “Illegal Organ Sales Have ‘Invaded’ Crisis-Hit Greece Too”

An extensive article published by the New York Times under the title “European Crisis Bolsters Illegal Sales of Body Parts” features Greece among the countries where illegal organ sales have recently been recorded as a result of dire financial conditions.

In heavily indebted Greece, a 46-year-old businessman from Piraeus recently said that the only way to save his family from ending up on the streets was to sell a kidney for €100,000, or $123,000. He told the Greek media that he had even hired a private investigator to help him find a buyer, reports journalist Dan Bilefski.

Bellona: Collapse of spent fuel storage pool at Fukushima Daiichi could be worse than initial accident, says new report

From: Swiss Think-Tank: Dire situation for global environment if No. 4 fuel pool releases all radioactive material — Gov’t appears to be keeping information classified

A collapse of the already tilting reactor No 4 building at the stricken Fukushima Daiichi plant [...] would lead to a “significant global impact”

[...]

According to the report [released by Holpchi CH, a Swiss-based industrial analytics think-tank], radiological fires would lead to some 30 to 100 percent of the cesium and strontium being released from the pool.

“If a radiological fire occurs and further cooling is impossible, more than 10 percent of the radioactive material of the [spent fuel pond] cold be released,” read the report. “Release of 100 percent of the cesium, strontium and other isotopes would scale the base case results by a factor of 10 and would clearly present a dire situation for areas of Japan, marine life in the Pacific and the global environment.”

The report acknowledges that it is not fully comprehensive, saying that many modeling structures about what could happen should the spent fuel pool fail “have been developed by government, but appear to be classified.”

The First Wave of World’s Collapsing Cities

Below table lists the world’s cities that are likely to collapse completely or partially by or before 2012¹ in the first wave of collapse. The collapse would be caused by a combination of failing ecosystems, human-enhanced environmental catastrophes; failing infrastructure; food, water and fuel shortages; infectious disease; war, civil conflict and other dynamics. Following the first phase of collapse, massive waves of human migration from the affected areas create a domino effect that causes the collapse of the remaining population centers shortly after.

Is your city safe?

To prevent misuse of data, commercial exploitation, or property speculation, the project coordinators are withholding names and specific details of the first phase of world’s collapsing cities until further notice. See table below for general information.
